The Nikon D90 DLSR has only just been announced, but SanDisk is already punting a compatible SDHC on the back of the camera-cum-camcorder's launch.

SanDisk's Extreme III SDHC cards: 4, 8 and 16GB

SanDisk’s Extreme III 30MB/s Edition SDHC reads data at - you've guessed it - 30MB/s, enabling each of the 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacity cards available to deliver “peak performance” when used with the D90. Or any other SDHC device, for that matter.

For example, the Extreme III SDHC will enable 39 images to be recorded in continuous shooting mode at 4.5 frames per second, with a file size of 6MB JPEG.

All Extreme III cards function in “extreme” temperatures, which SanDisk defines as between -25°C to 85°C. Each card works with other SDHC-compatible cameras.

SanDisk’s Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards will be available globally next month. The 4GB card will cost $65 (£35/€43), the 8GB card will retail for $110 (£60/€75) and the 16GB SDHC will set you back $180 (£95/€118).
